Alvin Boyd Kuhn really gets his facts straight when he reviews Christianity's origins as being not from Palestine, but ancient Egypt! Alvin Boyd Kuhn describes the myths of Egypt and demonstrates the fact that Jesus of Nazareth is a typical savior-type, which was quite common to the ancient mind. His pronouncement that Jesus is non-historical is not presented to destroy Christianity but to unlock the secret meaning and by doing so introduce the reader into the deeper meaning of the Gospels.
This book is not intended for the individual who is content with the common view of a historical Jesus but for the individual who struggles with a faith that seems like an impossibility. I would recommend this book to any theologian or spiritual seeker.

This book is a must read for anyone with an inquiring mind. Kuhn conclusively documents that the sublime wisdom embodied in Greek myth and Bible allegory is still not interpreted correctly by the western mind. As such, it will prove to be the weightiest psychological indictment of ignorance that history will present against the Christian civilization of this age. Indeed it is the root cause of conflict within and between societies - causing an unwarranted schism between conservatives and progressives.

He documents the source of the NT typology and allegory as being derived from ancient Egyptian systematization - the formulation for the individual of the virtuous and divine temple steps for the soul; to understand and apply to beome a creative worthwhile consciousness. His methodology evidences the real ancestral lineage of the OT and NT mythologies and he does this superbly well in tracing the image sources. He initially describes it as "revamped and terribly multilated Egyptianism" but recognizes there is much deeper layer of developed sentient meaning to be gleaned from the co-linking of scripture allegories, once perceived - that at least matches if not surpassing the original increment of the ancient mythologies. The co-linking of allegories provides conclusive evidence of layered sophisticated meaning. He starts by stating that Christianity must acknowledge its parentage in a pagan (called ancient primitive) past and that only by such recognition and regaining of its parentage will the sublime be comprehended - its true nobler splendor. Convincingly, he traces the Egyptian Jesus, Egyptian Lazarus, Egyptian Bethany, and the two Egyptian Maries.

Alvin Kuhn presents an extensively researched study of the origins of Christianity in Egyptian and Greek history and of the tragic efforts of the early church to cover up those origins and to adapt the gospels to the ignorance of the people; people made ignorant by the burning of libraries and closing of universities by that same church. Despite the present day trend toward fundalmentism, I think the educated public is ready for the truth, for a faith that is believable, and for a Cristos that is centered in the heart of the individual. Since this book was written in 1943, most of us would have been deprived of its wealth of knowledge concerning this important aspect of our lives had someone not chosen to have it reprinted. The studies by Egyptologist, Gerald Massey, on whose work Kuhn bases much of this treatise, is now also available and is a work of fact and truth supporting Kuhn's revelation of a corrupt church.
